It usually takes a few days to adjust to road construction that forces us to drive a new path to work or home. There will be several days to adjust to a portion of an upcoming project.
SR 25 / SR 14 is being resurfaced between U.S. 31 and Barrett Road. There are three sections to this project:
U.S. 31 to E. 9th Street.
E. 9th Street between Main and Race Street.
E. 9th Street between Race Street and Barrett Road.
Adam Parkhouse is the Director of Communications – Northwest District for INDOT. A recent letter from Parkhouse to city officials relates planned impact from the project to come.
Parkhouse notes that the first and third sections are standard resurfacings with sidewalk improvements. The second section, East 9th Street between Main and Race, is a full-depth reclamation that will require a 40-day closure (weather permitting) of the roadway.
INDOT is currently expecting that closure to begin July 27, which would take completion out to early September for that portion.
Parkhouse noted they have been working to make sure the contractor has a plan in place to maintain access to businesses and homes along E. 9th Street for the duration of that 40-day closure and they will stay on top of this to ensure that access is maintained.
The entire project is expected to be completed in October.
